    Default Encoding to xvid/divx

    I have been using a program called Fraps to capture videos from World of Warcraft. This saves the videos as AVI files, at a resolution of 840 x 525.

    Ive made a video using what Ive captured, with Vegas 6, and would now like to save it as Xvid or DivX. So I rendered it as an uncompressed AVI, and then loaded up Virtualdub to compress it, but get an error when when trying to compress it to either. I can compress the original AVI files created by Fraps fine, so there must be a problem with the rendered file that Vegas creates, but I dont know what.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Is there a way I could get Vegas to render the file in Xvid or DivX format?

    The uncompressed AVI rendered by Vegas is about 8Gb in size, so I really need to compress it to a format for Google Video or Youtube.

    What error do you get from v dub ?

    Vegas should render divx directly. IN the 'render as' window select .avi as 'Save as type. Then 'custom' - 'video' and select dvix under 'video format'.

    In Virtualdub, when trying to compress in Xvid, I get:

    Code:
    Cannot start video compression:
    
    An unknown error occured (may be corrupt data).
    (error code - 100)
    With DivX I get:

    Code:
    Cannot initialize video compression due to codec error: The source image format is not acceptable.

    Ah, got it. To encode to divx the size of the vid have to be a multiple of 4 or something like that, go check.

    Render your fraps video to a 'normal' res like 640 by 480 and vegas will render it fine I ma sure.

    Thanks for that

    I just figured that out as well, and got Vegas to render it in DivX and Xvid. I was trying to render it at 840 x 525, and this is what DivX and Xvid didn't like

    Default what if

    xvid isn't in the list? lol. i only have 18 options, no xvid, divx, nothing. i got a couple files now lined up for render and i simply can't make due with the file size i'm ending up with.

    You will need to install the codecs - look on the divx / xvid home sites.
